Checking out different types of coal & fossils.

Stingrays. I had no idea they were so slimy. This was the best picture I could get, these guys are fast!

We also got to pet the starfish.

Then we played around in the dry exhibit. The had crab shells, sea shells, a starfish, and some type of eggs. I can’t remember what kind of eggs they were.

We saw a Comodo Dragon. Much smaller than the one we saw on Discovery the other night.

These guys weren’t Alligators or Crocodiles. I really should have written the name down. Still, they were big, and long.

A smaller lizard.

One of the biggest Lobsters I’ve ever seen.

A Shark

They had several exhibits like this. You can look inside, and see what the different body parts were according to the numbers.

I finally got a picture of the seal on our way out.

  1. >We live near the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and have visited about five times already. My son loves the shark tank the best. We especially loved going back after our vacation this summer to Grand Cayman where we went crab hunting at night and swam with the dolphins. How great an opportunity for your girls!

  2. >That's so cool. We had a stingray petting tank at Brookfield Zoo a couple of summers ago, but something broke in one of the tanks, and overnight all the stingrays died. It was really sad. I think they shut it down and it never opened again after that. But it was SUCH a cool thing to see when it was there. I wasn't brave enough to reach in and touch them, but I think Jonas (who was 2 at the time) did.
